With both teams playing last night and the Bucks defense falling apart, a play on the over for this one looks to be a strong play heading into the final week before the All Star Break.

Bucks vs. Pacers 

Both the Pacers and Bucks played tough games last night and they will both be coming into Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Saturday trying to rebound from a loss. The NBA Odds have the Pacers as -7 favorites, but the real value in this one is in the total of 213.

In this time right before the All Star Break, defense starts to go out the window. Most teams are looking forward to a nice vacation over next weekend, so the final few days before that break are bound to see some higher scores.

Combine that with two teams with tired legs and bad defenses and you have a total you can’t pass up tonight. These two teams are a combined 13-8 cashing the over when playing on no rest.

Plus, the Bucks’ defense is starting to fall apart slowly. The loss of Jabari Parker hurts some, but generally they were trending downward before his injury. They have cashed the over in seven of their last 10 games and it seems like here on no rest they are going to give up enough to cash it again.

The Bucks also dropped 125 points on the Pacers in their first meeting way back in November, so there is precedence for a higher scoring game.
